How to choose your perfect passport cover?
There`s no more exciting experience than traveling. Exploring new corners gives us valuable lessons – tolerance to people of other nationalities, appreciation of what we have, flexibility and self-sufficiency, reviewing life priorities, the need for balance between work and self-development, the importance of history and cultural knowledge, and many others.
Traveling teaches us to be patient, self-independent, inventive, and eco-conscious. And it has a considerable impact on Hidemont`s team philosophy, as well.
We`re proud to stick to the fundamental principle that all leather items are made for people by people. A new product enriches the collection only after careful checking it corresponds to high standards. Be sure that all Hidemont travel accessories for women and men are tested to lasting quality, expected functionality, and unmatching style.
In this article, we will discuss what a passport cover is, why we need it, the difference between a passport cover and a passport travel wallet, and how to choose the best passport cover. Besides, you`re going to know more about the diversity of Hidemont`s passport cover designs, how to use a passport holder, and how to make a passport cover a meaningful travel gift.
What is a passport cover?
The more we travel, the more our passport suffers. And, not to travel with a rather well-worn passport before its expiration date or not show the customs officer spattered entry and exit stamps, one should be aware of the advantages the best passport holder provides.
A passport cover is a must-have accessory for every frequent flier that gently handles the documents and prolongs their lifespan. As an efficient travel piece, a passport cover neatly blankets the passport to protect important documents from wear and tear, weather conditions, spills, and other sudden damage.
Everyone has their needs, so it's possible to shop online for personalized passport holder in various styles, designs, and colors to find the one to suit your travel repertoire.
Advantages of a passport cover
Such a simple travel accessory like a passport cover may be a real life-saver and game-changer during business trips, family vacations, honeymoons, travel vlogging, or other significant life situations when you need to spend many hours getting from A to B.
- Reliable protection
Each trip implies many steps you and your passport go through – check-in desk, luggage handling, security pass, boarding gate, and customs. Moreover, walking around the city, we keep our passports handy.
Protection of documents is the first and foremost function the case fulfills on the go. Hit the road and have no worries about your passport getting torn, stained, soaked, or lost. Also, the cover protects the passport when it`s stashed in bags and backpacks, insulating it from other items inside.
Traveling is all about unpredictable situations we should be ready for. A quality passport cover will soften the effect of possible consequences, keeping the documents fresh-looking as long as possible.
- Effective organization
You may come across different terms to denote passport covers like passport case, passport holder, passport wallet, travel wallet with a passport holder, or passport sleeve. Those are different goods offering many ways how to use a passport holder. Whereas passport cover, case, and holder are almost the same, safeguarding the passport, passport wallet and travel wallet with passport holder have slots for other needed items. And the passport sleeve features a pocket form where you can put a passport and other stuff inside.
Don't deny yourself the pleasure of getting a new designer passport wallet because it guarantees convenience during trips, making your travel experience much more pleasant and hustle-free. This little helper ensures you don`t waste a spare minute rummaging for needed stuff but have everything at hand when every minute counts.

Have you ever missed a flight? Then, the best passport wallet guarantees you a smooth flight.

How to choose the best passport holder?
A choice of a new passport holder may seem a challenging task because most of the mass-market covers are impractical and cause considerable discomfort during trips.
First of all, the extra bulk the cover provides discourages us from taking it for every trip because it requires too much space in a travel bag or pocket – when everything needs to be packed tidily and compactly. In addition, usually, the cover size often appears to be bigger than a passport, not fitting it snuggly and making it float around.
Paying little attention to vital aspects, we may face inconvenient passport cover usage, its fraying look, and, in the worst cases, the loss of the document. Even though you think searching for a passport cover is time-consuming and nerve-racking, you`ll be relieved to know about useful ways to make this process far more stressless. I`m glad to give some tips on selecting the best passport cover.
- Size of passport and cover
When searching for a passport case, double-check your passport dimensions and compare them with passport cover dimensions. The standardized size of the US passport is 3.5” x 5” (9 x 12.5 cm), and the difference of half an inch (1 cm) is enough for the best-fitting passport cover.
Why is the size of the cover so important? If the cover is too big, the passport and other essentials will tumble inside with the risk of falling out. If the cover is too tight, you`ll feel inconvenienced while putting the passport in and out. A snug-fit passport cover will save you a couple of minutes at the customs counter when asked to remove the cover. Also, the appropriate cover size is less likely to bend the corners of the passport and thus prolong the document's lifespan.
Passport covers offer a wide range of materials, for example, clear vinyl that provides good protection but looks cheap and boring, or fabric and faux leather that fail to be waterproof and durable. The designer passport wallet crafted of genuine leather is the best option for jet-setters because of its long-lasting quality, smooth texture, superior appearance, and easy maintenance. Learn more about how to take care of leather goods and leather care products to keep your passport wallet fresh-looking for as long as possible.
Go ahead and plum for a passport travel wallet that fully meets your needs and taste. Consider personal preferences and whether you require extra pockets for maps, credit cards, notes, receipts, tickets, or boarding passes. Also, the closure mechanism the passport wallets provide plays a huge role in securing the documents.
Personalization makes a pleasant bonus when selecting your new travel companion because it not only adds much fun to your style but also identifies your documents on the go. However, it's necessary to pay attention to the quality and durability of the personalization method, so be sure that hot stamping (embossing) will bring a sophisticated flair to your trips that won't fade away over the years. Check out our detailed guide on embossing types.
